To the family of my dear sorority sister, Cynthia Williams. May God bless and keep you during this difficult time. Cynthia was a beautiful, loving, hardworking, dedicated and fun person. I am so happy our paths crossed. She was chair of protocol and traditions when Jackson TN Alumnae Chapter hosted the 2018 TN Cluster. We talked several times during the week leading up to the cluster and on the day of her arrival in Jackson, I just happened to be at the Double Tree taking care of business. We hugged and laughed, then the remainder of the weekend was work, work, work. I will truly miss her. Take your rest my dear sister. Family rejoice in knowing that she lead a full life with no regrets. My sincere condolences to each of you.
